Novak Djokovic is heading to the French Open in hopes of single-handedly capturing the Grand Slam record.

Novak Djokovic will challenge for his 23rd career Grand Slam title at this year’s French Open, which his old rival Rafael Nadal will miss for the first time since 2004, and Iga Swiatek will attempt to become the first woman in 16 years to defend the title.

Djokovic and Nadal share the most men’s Grand Slam titles in history with 22 each, and Djokovic could singlehandedly claim the record with a Roland Garros win.

However, the Serb is not the favorite after an elbow injury and a failed attempt to reach the quarter-finals in any of his three clay court tournaments this season.
